God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Aunt Vera Update

My thanks to all of you who have been in prayer for my Aunt Vera.  She came home from the hospital on Thursday & is feeling good.  The fluid retention was controlled with intravenous Lasix & then the same med in pill form which she will continue to take indefinitely.  She was also found to have a leaky heart valve or two, & whatever medication they are giving her for that problem is likewise working well.  She is in good spirits.  She goes to her oncologist's office for another dose of chemo in 2 weeks, & then at the end of October she will see him for an appointment & is hoping that he will say "no need for any more chemo."  I am hoping the same.

Great news all around! Our Aunt Mabel has several leaky heart valves, and she is 91. She says they won't operate, but I wonder if they can prescribe the same medicine for her? She could use a little more energy IN her veins instead of leaking out! Gonna check on that. Hugs!
